Mines Nancy - 3rd Year - Master 2 - Department Energy & Fluid Mechanics

Academic Year 2017-2018

Advanced Fluid Mechanics

Transition to Turbulence & Turbulence - Applications to Transfers, Aerodynamics & Wind Energy

Syllabus       ARCHE Page


      This module is given by myself (E. Plaut, EP) and Joachim Peinke (J. Peinke, JP).

Find here the latest version of our Lecture Notes.

Hereafter we give the planning and a few information. This page will be updated during the course of the module. In particular, some homeworks will be defined...

In the sessions 2 to 9 of this module, and during the examination, we use Mathematica : bring your laptop with Mathematica.

Find here a collection of texts of past exams.

Nous remercions la Fondation Mines Nancy et le programme Erasmus+ pour leur soutien, qui nous permet d'inviter le Prof. Peinke à donner 3 sessions dans ce module, ainsi qu'une conférence générale.
